Throughout August 2017, Chicago artist Nick “Sick” Fisher created a large-scale mural on the north wall of the Skokie Theatre in Downtown Skokie. Get a behind-the-scenes perspective of the mural creation process from Fisher, Wendy Kaplan, owner of the Skokie Theatre and John Maloof, member of the Skokie Public Arts Advisory Committee and owner of Miishkooki Art Space in Skokie.
